Simple fried chicken with a spicy marinade make this Indonesian recipe a charmer.

Ayam Gereng (Indonesian Fried Chicken)
Recipe type: Poultry
Serves: 4
  • 1 medium chicken
  • Marinade:
  • 1/2 Cup tamarind water
  • 1 Tablespoon clear soya sauce
  • a pinch of chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • a pinch of turmeric
  1. The name means simply 'fried chicken', and that is all it is. The marinade, however, gives it a characteristically Indonesian flavor.
  2. Marinate the pieces of chicken in this mixture for 2 hours, turning them from time to time. Strain the chicken, so that the marinade drips away from it. Then deep-fry the portions, 4 or 5 at a time.
Chicken fried in this way is excellent with Nasi Goreng. (Nasi Goreng is fried rice.) Makes 4 servings.
